i'm glad they made the point of kids and new animals. i get an overflow of families w/young children wanting to adopt from me and i turn them all away. parents need to be more observant and open to the fact that their child may not always be a little angel. if more parents were responsible about teaching their kids and supervising them, i'd personally have more homes to adopt to.

i guess parents are too busy these days to even supervise let alone teach. the pet is there to keep the kids busy

Every potential pet guardian should read this & prepare! So many people buy animals on impulse, which can lead to neglect, abuse, &/or surrendering them to a shelter.

I just recently adopted a dog at the shelter but I still have to wait until they finish neutering him to pick him up! Though I've been going about organizing things in the house like crazy... I never did think of going down on all fours to see from his perspective. I definitely will try that later~

another thing i have to be careful of is turning on the ceiling fan. scoot likes to land hard on it and make it turn slowly. if it was on he could get his head or wings chopped off

Speaking of this there was a reptile show in petco today and alot of people there came in and bought Bearded dragons. I love reptiles but I hope these people had everything they need to take care of and raise a bearded dragon. Reptiles are alot of work. I would have a crested Geko or a Corn snake if I could. But they are alot diffrent from dogs, cats,rodents and birds which I have had before. I guess I have had fish before too. I will make sure who ever takes Shorty home is prepared for a new kitty. Also I will make sure they know what to expect from his personality so that his adoption will be a permanet home for him.
